Icon _quote2Pat, Thank you for providing such kind and compassionate care for our family with the death of our mother and grandmother, Blanche Konzak. Please thank Linda Holm for showing dignity and heartfelt expression of sympathy when arriving at Bethesda Pleasantview Nursing Home at 2 a.m. to prepare and transport Blanche back to her "Home" at Sauk Centre. Linda was a blessing with her gentleness. Blanche was an amazing person and we are all so blessed to have had her in our lives.

God's Peace,
Ron and Rosie Peterson

Icon _quote2I would like to take this time to thank the entire staff of Patton Shad Funeral Home for the respect, love, dignity and care extended to our family after the loss of my Mother-In law, Mary Ann Braun. You truly made me feel that Mary Ann was part of your family. The personal and loving touch was far more than what would be expected. It was a very difficult time for all of us but you made our "Journey" very memorable and blessed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making Mary Ann's funeral so special.

May God Bless You All,
David Carruthers

Icon _quote2 I recently lost my mother Mary Jane Schneider and I first want to thank your staff for doing such a fabulous job on how everything was handled from the start to the finish. Her appearance was so natural and real we could hardly believe it - she honesty looked like she was asleep. I personally want to thank you for this and all who helped make this a memorable exit of her life.

Icon _quote2Dear Pat & Sue, Just wanted to let you know how deeply we appreciated your kindness and how you made everything easy for us. You are very professional, but at the same time you are warm and gracious. You made us feel like a friend was helping us manuever through this difficult time. Also, the way you greeted us at the door and took our coats when we came for Dad's viewing was like coming into a friend's home. I didn't expect that. The little things do matter. Your staff is wonderful. There was not one negative thing throughout our whole experience with Patton-Schad Funeral Home and that is really an exceptional thing to be able to say when dealing with someone under these circumstances. My whole family appreciates you. Thank you so much!
